Saudi foreign affairs

Saudi academic, Khalid Ad-Dakhil made this point: that Saudi foreign affairs have been in the hands of Faysal and his son Saud for 85 years.  Faysal was the first foreign minister of the kingdom, as you may know.  He is saying that this transfer in the foreign ministry--not that Adil Al-Jubayr would be running it, of course--is quite significant.
